One hundred and six enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) isolated from many geographical areas were serotyped and investigated for the presence of colonization factor antigens CFA/I and CFA/II, the expression of mannose-resistant haemagglutination (MRHA) and the levels of surface hydrophobicity.
CFA/I was found in 6 (17%) of 16 LT+STa+ strains and in 15 (54%) of 28 STa+ strains; CFA/II was found in 16 (44%) of 16 LT+STa+ strains.
None of 42 LT+strains showed CFA/I or CFA/II.
CFA/I was found in ETEC of serotypes O61:
O128:K67 and O153:K-:H45, whereas CFA/II was found in serotypes O6:H-,
O6:K15:H16 and 06:K?:H40.
